Saturday, May 9, 1pm: Art Car Parade
  • Aaaahhhh! It's finally here! The highlight of my year! The Art Car parade is the example I use to persuade all my non-Houstonian friends that H-town is actually a very quirky and cool place to live. It will be on Allen Parkway between Taft and downtown--and it's free!
